The Xoregos Performing Company continues its 2018 season with Jean Racine's classic drama set in Nero's palace in the First Century A.D. More…
The characters of 'Britannicus' include Nero, his mother Agrippina, and his step-brother Britannicus, rightful Emperor of Rome. This production marks the East Coast premiere of Howard Rubenstein's translation and offers a rare opportunity to see French classical theater in America.
See it if you enjoy classical theater, Roman history, intimate spaces, great acting, faithful adaptions, & wonderful costumes.
Don't see it if you enjoy inspired direction (other than "stand there and say this"), you don't enjoy long winded speeches, or want a poetic translation.
